How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

They had just started.

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

No

Why was this a real problem for the client?

This location had been under its new parent company for going on 2 years and had begun the process of making organizational changes to the operations and sales teams. They began hiring motivated and energetic salespeople in the hopes that it would encourage the existing sales team to do more.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

This candidate was working for his Father’s packaging company as a broker where he sold packaging in the Midwest. His business was being squeezed by the much larger packaging companies in the industry so it was becoming more and more challenging to compete. He had to pay for his own health insurance and expenses. The support of a larger organization allowed him to thrive.
